Is there a way to edit the names of custom fields in forms? For example, I want to create a new field but my only option is use the name Extension Attribute 12. I would like to rename the attribute so it makes sense.

We want to utilize existing AD attributes but rename them within Adaxes so our help desk staff don't get confused when creating profiles.

Hello John,

Yes, it is possible. You can specify a custom display name for any property, including extension attributes (e.g. Extension Attribute 12) and Adaxes custom attributes (e.g. CustomAttributeText1). For details, see https://www.adaxes.com/help/?HowDoI.Man ... Names.html.

Before checking the changes in Adaxes Web Interface or Web Interface Configurator, refresh the page using Ctrl+F5.

Oh so you finally put that option in the UI for the 2018 version, looking forward to get rid of all the XML edition process + service reboot :D
